Protect Your Business from Costly GDPR Fines with Hyarchis’ Automated Solution

published 2023-07-05

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU). GDPR is aimed at protecting the privacy and personal data of EU citizens and giving them more control over their personal information. Failure to comply with GDPR regulations can result in hefty fines, loss of reputation, and legal consequences.

In today’s digital age, where data is generated and exchanged at an unprecedented rate, GDPR compliance has become more critical than ever before. According to DLA Piper’s GDPR Fines and Data Breach Survey 2022, there were over 281,000 reported data breaches across 28 countries in the European Economic Area (EEA), with fines totaling over €523 million. These numbers highlight the significance of GDPR compliance in today’s business world. Organizations must ensure that they collect, process, store, and dispose of personal data in a manner that complies with GDPR regulations to avoid significant legal and financial consequences.
